      OK, I understand. Perhaps this points to a possible bug in the 
Extension Manager itself. The AOO version of this connector seems to 
install, but it fails to enable the connector. I have clicked the 
connector, and two buttons appear: Enable and Delete. When I click the 
Enable button, I get the error message.
      Seems to me that installing an extension should also enable it. 
Then if someone wants to disable an extension, he can open the Extension 
Manager to do this. This might be a bug, or is it a feature request?
